"Think twice, 007. It's a long way down."
After taking the spy action into space in the heavily science fiction-themed Moonraker (1979), producer Albert R. Broccoli wanted to bring 007 back down to Earth — both literally and figuratively — in the 12th movie in the franchise, For Your Eyes Only (1981). When a British spy boat carrying the Automatic Targeting Attack Communicator (ATAC) the Royal Navy uses to co-ordinate their fleet of Polaris nuclear submarines is sunk, MI6's top agent, James Bond (Roger Moore), is called into action to retrieve it from the depths of the Mediterranean Sea. Unbeknownst to Bond, the KGB is also aware that the ship has sunk and they've sent out agents to retrieve the ATAC before Bond can get his hands on it.
Gritty Cold War action in exotic locales with the fate of the world at stake, this is what Bond was made for! Tune in tonight at 8:00pm ET/ 5:00pm PT. We have more 007 movies all month long, see schedule for dates and times.
